I recall blowing the diodes on an alternator by disconnect the battery on a running late 60's Chevy. Does that problem still exist or have they fixed it?

I'd probably pull the fuse for the computer.

I think you have a bad ignition switch. I would try lubricating the switch, wd40 or graphite.

Yes you can still blow diodes but usually not at idle speed. Not that much output.

Had that problem with a GMC Acadia. It was a bad computer module, the "BCM" in that product. You could also have a bad relay. The ignition key Off position just removes power that engages a relay to provide 12v to all the pales that need it. If that relay stuck on, or there is a short to the trigger circuit, power stays on and the engine keeps running.
